Joe's Story

Minimally Invasive/Robotic Surgery by Dr. Nassif
Joe, 54, was alarmed when his physician in Pensacola told him he had found precancerous cells during a routine colonoscopy. "He told me that I needed surgery and that I might lose my rectum and need a colostomy bag," Joe recalls. Seeking a second, expert opinion, Joe's sister read about Dr. Nassif's use of minimally invasive, robotic surgery to treat colon cancer. Joe, a pilot, flew from Pensacola to Orlando to be seen at Center for Colon and Rectal Cancer.
